Jamie Kent (Director of Operations)
Jamie Kent wears two important hats for First Note Entertainment; he is one of the company's flagship nationally touring artists, and also its Director of Operations.
Utilizing his experience and success as an independent musician over the past 5 years, Kent has spearheaded the Production of the Rising Star Road Show. As a musician he has been named by RollingStone.com as an "Artist You Need To Know and dubbed a "Must Watch Artist" by The Huffington Post. He has also toured with the likes of Huey Lewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, and Marc Broussard. As an entertainment entrepreneur he has Produced multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival, launched a Summer Concert Series in two cities, and run Road Dog Records, an independent label founded Kent and Tommy Jackson that debuted Kent's record at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. He has also brokered endorsement deals with multi national companies such as Bose, Durango Boots, Sweetwater, and Telefunken Microphones. Landing in between Luke Bryan and Dolly Parton, Kent was the only independent artist to break into the Top 20. Jamie is beyond excited to take his skills and experience and help find and foster the next generation of Rising Stars.
